Microsoft Enhances AI Capabilities In Windows 11 Update

The update isn’t a game changer, but is useful for Copilot fans.

After introducing Copilot Pro at the beginning of the year, Microsoft has added a series of enhancements to bolster its AI assistant’s functionality in Windows 11. A notable new addition is the integration of plugins, a feature previously exclusive to the web version of Copilot.

Users can now seamlessly connect Copilot with various services like OpenTable and Instacart, allowing them to book restaurant reservations and do grocery shopping directly within the chat interface. Additional plugins from Kayak, Klarna, and Shopify are slated for release in the coming month, underscoring Microsoft’s aim to optimize usability within the Copilot environment.

In addition, Microsoft is streamlining access to system settings by enabling users to perform tasks like toggling battery saver mode, and managing hardware profiles directly from inside of the AI chat interface. Copilot can also execute commands to activate accessibility features such as Live Captions, Narrator, and Screen Magnifier, as well as display available Wi-Fi networks. This enhanced integration should improve the user experience by eliminating the need to navigate through the Settings app.

Furthermore, Microsoft is enhancing AI capabilities in select Windows 11 apps such as Photos and Clipchamp. Photos now features a Generative Erase function for removing unwanted elements from images, while Clipchamp is set to introduce a Silence Removal AI tool for editing videos.

These Copilot and AI enhancements will be gradually rolled out to users with Windows 11 versions 22H2 and 23H2. To access these updates, Microsoft advises users to enable the “Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available” option. Most features are expected to be accessible with the optional March 2024 non-security preview update.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
